of michigan how to get people back to work. and a prime minister speaks out about the terror attacks that shocked the world. this is "piers morgan tonight." today president obama billed a 3 trillionplan to cut the deficit. reduce spending in iraq and afghanistan and higher taxes on the wealthiest american. republican leaders promptly dismissed it calling the plan class warfare. does the president's plan have a chance? joining me is gene sperling director of the national economic council. thank you for joining me. the president announced today he'll go after the rich. the republicans say that is a form of class warfare. the president says it's math. but the reality is it is class warfare. the rich are a class and he's going after them. >> it's the opposite. the president is asking for balance, for shared sacrifice. he's asking for everybody to contribute and getting our long-term deficit down. he wants a plan that will be strong and powerful. the american jobs act. but we come to fiscal discipline, we all have to be in this together. when the president put out as a principle that thos
from my life." michael, there's a story today out of michigan politics, out of benton harbor, michigan, that i saved until this point in the show because i really want to get your take on it as well as what's going on with the republican presidential candidates. can you hold on one second? >> absolutely, yes. >> we'll be back with michael moore. future of fuel? the debate is over. ♪ lexus hybrid drive technology is designed to optimize any fuel source on the planet. even those we don't use yet. because when you pursue perfection, you don't just engineer a future-proof hybrid system. you engineer amazing. ♪ you engineer amazing. a vacation on a budget with expedia. make it work. booking a flight by itself is an uh-oh. see if we can "stitch" together a better deal. that's a hint, antoine. ooh! see what anandra did? booking your flight and hotel at the same time gets you prices hotels and airlines won't let expedia show separately. book it. major wow factor! where you book matters. expedia. somewhere in america, there's a doctor who can peer into the future. there's a nurse who can ac
of the two top front-runners left florida to be in michigan where there is a g.o.p. gathering for the remainder of this weekend. perry arrived there a short while ago. mr. romney got there last night after having spent the day in indiana. so it's a particulay important straw poll, too. there is only two that matter in the aggregate for presidential politics. one in iowa, we saw that. michele bachmann won it but hasn't been able to capitalize on the victory. the florida straw poll, this one is the fifth presidential cycle where this convention is taking place. has been indicator in the past, the people that won the straw polls went on to be president. ronald reagan, george h. bush were all winners. they won the straw poll and ended up in the white house. a lot is riding on this and the perry campaign is looking for a big win. you're right about that. romney is not organizing. jon huntsman is ignoring it. the candidates that took part in the fox news debate will be on the ballot with the exception of gary johnson, the new mexico governor who simply didn't participate. >> uma: it
. >> yeah, florida and then also as well michigan this morning. let's start in michigan, the re. at the top, mitt romney with 51% of the delegates voting for him. we knew he would do well, the former massachusetts governor was born in michigan, his dad was a popular governor. romney won the republican primary last time around. perry way down in -- way, way back there. he did go to michigan to campaign for this. but not so well in the results. let's go to the one out of florida. this is the florida presidency five. the winner was not rick perry, which a lot of people thought he would be. it was herman cain by a long shot. there is rick perry at 15%. romney at 14 and so on. and, fred, this is interesting because maybe these results are a reflection of the uneven debate performances we have seen from rick perry, both in florida. could be troubling. he's still the front-runner but this is troubling for rick perry. >> so straw polls, how important are they really? >> yes and no. they're a test of a campaign outreach to activists. important republicans. but, no, listen, if it was all about straw
wants to put romney away. >> we also had another straw poll from michigan this morning and i think it was 50% -- more than 50% here. 50.9%. the mackinaw straw poll, rick perry 16.8%. mitt romney runs away with it now. he's basically the hometown boy in michigan. his father was governor there and this is activist republicans, romney's a very familiar name. is there anything we should read into any of these straw polls? >> you don't want to overinterpret straw polls. 600 or 700 people in michigan voting in that, 400 or 500 in florida. the races continue to be unsettled. i think what we've learned this weekend is that there's going to be an extended fight between mitt romney and rick perry. they both have some strength. they both have a considerable amount of money, we think, the ability to raise money. and neither of them have closed the deal. that's what i take away from this weekend. >> mitt romney has been an incredibly lucky candidate. when he was coasting along as the front-runner, in the spring and summer the other candidates didn't want to engage too much with one another. the
, and it has standarted. jennifer granholm is a former governor of michigan, now an msnbc contributor, and the author of a brand-new book "a governor's story." and bob strum is an economic strategist. i want you to listen to this. clinton strategist mark penn who worked for the clintons said, "obama's new tone won't work." he writes, "barack obama is careening down the wrong path towards re-election. he should be claiming the vital center, not abandoning it. he should be holding down taxes rather than raising them. he should be dividing it through class warfare." that's mark penn. he's critiquing the president's new move to divide the country between those who want fair taxes and those who are rich, who don't. your thoughts, bob shrum? >> well, you know, that's marcus saying this kind of stuff all the time. two reactions to it. first, it was a remarkably fact-free and numbers-free piece from a guy who's supposed to be a pollster. he says, for example, that gore lost -- i actually think he won -- but that gore lost because he was too the populist. he talked about the people, not the po
the the coach. five days ahead of the game with michigan, one of the greatest rivalries in the country, they fire their coach. they're infuriated by this decision. the expression of public anger took the form of one of those college sports moments that makes our executive, bill wolf cry at meetings when he tries to explain them. hours after coach earl bruce was fired, 150 members of the ohio state marching band marched to earl bruce's house and serenaded their old devastated coach with ohio state fight songs. ♪ the whole state of michigan ♪ we're from ohio >> coach earl bruce was not a man who wants to reveal his emotions. he went openly with the band on his lawn. five days later ohio state traveled to michigan and somehow beat their arch rivals and the buckeye players carried coach earl bruce off the field on their shoulders. serenading leads to weeping, leads to upset victory and redemption. earl bruce's week in november 1987 was the standard in which tearful marching band stories must, must be judged. the best thing in the world is right up there with it. it's maybe even as good
-runner's status this weekend. mitt romney won michigan straw poll by a 3-1 margin over perry. now, romney's father served as michigan governor in the '60s making the son somewhat of a home state favorite. in florida, herman cain took top billing. he drew twice as many votes as perry, with romney in third place. cain says he won because voters are beginning to notice his 999 tax plan. here's how he explains it. >> my plan is bold because it throws out the tax code and imposes a business flat tax of 9%, personal flat tax of 9%, national sales tax of 9%. it replaces all of the taxes that people are now having to grapple with and it provides search engine to the business community which is what they're looking for in order to grow this economy. >> governor perry jumped into the race for the gop nomination. that was just six weeks ago. instantly topped the polls but critics say that perry's debate performances have been kind of shaky, leaning to some doubts. >>> well, in 3 1/2 hours we're going to get new details on the washington monument and perhaps when it's going to reopen to tourists. it's been cl
ri are in michigan on mackinaw island but before rick perry departed the sunshine state he spoke to a prayer breakfast of republican activists and made it clear thesis there has to be a kind of candidate not necessarily skilled in debating but firm in his conviction, casting himself as such one. listen to this. >> americans are looking for in a candidate, they are looking for an authentic principled leader. [ applause ] >> think about it. you have seen what happens when our country chooses leaders who emphasize words over deeds. >> . >> reporer: as i said earlier, a number of candidates had an opportunity to speak today. each of them making their pitch why they belong in the oval office but also making a pitch for whether they want their name bhecked off in this ballot. here is a little bit of the speech earlier today. >> when you cast your ballot at this straw poll, send washington on mechblg. they are ready for a problem solver, not another politician. they are ready for solutions. they ready for solutions. that is what the united states of america, the premium of ready for. se

at some of the other news going on. a michigan man is relying on surveillance video in his suit against two police officers who escorted him out of a casino. the video shows one cop punched the man in the face, knocking him to the ground where he continues punching him. assault charges initially filed by the officers were later dropped after the prosecutor viewed the tape. >>> in texas firefighters believe a bolt of lightning may be to blame for a brush fire on the site where the 2004 movie "the alamo" was shot. it's scorched some 200 acres. >>> an underground gas leak set a road on fire in northern california last night. firefighters were called to the scene after a four-inch gas line set a major intersection ablaze, forcing traffic to be redirected and several nearby businesses to evacuate. fortunately, no injuries have been reported. >>> and finally, a controversial costume has stirred up hard feelings in florida. the ice cream cone costume was meant to draw customers to a newly opened store, but from a distance, some locals thought the cone looked like a klu klux klan hood. the youn

on healthcare. it comes from ian mcdonald of michigan who says he has a health problem. watch it, sir. >> i am a student so for me and those like me democrat healthcare reform allowing us to stay on our insurance longer would be a godsend. if you were elected would you work in the state position of the party to repeal this reform. if so do we pray really hard that our illness --. >> chris: what about provisions that he talks about. the one that allows kids to stay on their parents' policies until they are 26 or not limiting coverage for preexisting conditions. president obama says the only way insurance companies can afford to provide those kinds of reforms is with the individual mandate where they get a lot of new customers? >> when i hear this discussion i think of my daughter elizabeth who is sitting in the front row who suffers from juvenile diabetes. i am also reminded we are fundamentally approaching healthcare reform the wrong way. one trillion dollar bomb of obamacare is creating such uncertainty in the marketplace that businesses are not willing to hire, not willing to deploy capital

came out there was a similar straw poll in michigan, at an annual republican conference of mackinaw voters and romney got just over 50% of that one and we need to put it in perspective and it is a warning sign for governor perry, his debate performance affected his standing at least with florida voters if not republicans around the country. >> jamie: after the debate it is pretty clear that the governor felt he had not done as well as he could have in the debate. how much of a role did the issue of paying for kids of illegal immigrants' education, in his home state, how much did it play, his comments on that? >> i think that was an important issue, especially a lot of floridians, when they went to the straw poll, that is obviously immigration, is obviously a very important issue in florida, but, nationally, i think a lot of people were concerned that he was inarticulate and wasn't the smooth-talking texan we have gotten to know over the last five weeks and that is concerning baugh over the national stage he'll be facing one of the most eloquent public figures, barack obama, believe
